These People May Have Lost a Limb, but Not Their Sense of Style

 

Bespoke Innovations was founded in 2009 by Industrial Designer Scott Summit and Orthopedic Surgeon Kenneth Trauner. Their mission is to ‘bring more humanity to people who have congenital or traumatic limb loss’ [source].

Bespoke Innovations build and design fairings, specialized coverings that surround an existing prosthetic leg, accurately recreating the body form through a process that uses three-dimensional scanning to capture the unique leg shape. Fairings are designed for, and with, the amputee. The wearer is invited to choose from a library of patterns and graphics, and can even add customized text and detailing. They may also choose specific finishes, such as ballistic nylon, leather or mirror-polished metal.

Typical costs range between $4000 – $6000 usd and a standard fairing weights about 6.6 ounces (187 grams). Leather finishes typically add 3-5 ounces and metal can increase the total weight to about 18 ounces. Fairings are also available for above-knee amputees but do not cover prosthetic components on the upper leg.

Below you will find an amazing gallery of custom designs that were tailored to meet the requirements of each individual. For more visit Bespoke Innovations’ official site.
